Compile a form

Compiling a form translates it into an XML file with an extension of 42f.

The compiled form file (42f) is used by the Genero client to display the application form to the user. All 42f files must be included with your application code in distributions.

With the form open, select Build > Compile file from the main menu.
  • A form can also be compiled in Project Manager when the form is a part of a Build of an entire application.
  • A form can also be compiled at the command-line with gsform.
